Wild Minds – Day 6

Made a field trip to the UBC Farm and opportunity for the youth to see and work on an operating farm. Toured the Farm and did a little weeding. Also checked out the bee hives, chickens, researchers plots, orchard, and a walk through the edge forest as an opportunity to identify many of the native plants in the natural environment and that we have been learning about. A highlight was seeing a large Barred Owl close up. Was also good to show the youth an example of peri-urban farming, not to mention it is simply a very beautiful place to visit (despite ever encroaching development) and easy to get to by bus.
